Feels like home
Arrived there around 1am and still got such a warm welcome from them. Despite looking tired, they still take some time explaining everything to me and even prepared me some coffee. This place really feels like home and everyone who stayed there ended up bonding really fast. One of my favorite hostel in Europe.

Cheap and central location. Good for solo travelers, with good vibe.
Pros -- 10/12 EUR a night is cheap in Budapest. The location is really central, with the hostel located in an apartment complex with high ceilings and lovely big windows. I met a lot of great people in the hostel, that made my stay as a solo traveler really fun. I ended up staying one week and two days. It's nice that the beds are not bunks. Cons -- For the 6 Bed/S Mixed With Private Bathroom, in reality its not a private bathroom, as other guests are using it as well. The floor and the stairs up to the beds closer to the roof creaks like hell when other guests going up and down. The privacy is a bit limited, as there are sofas and social areas in the same rooms as the beds. The showers and shower curtains are poorly maintained and quite dirty. For people allergic to cats and dogs, be aware, as there is one dog, and two cats in the apartment. In the evening for bedtime, they remove the animals from the hostel premises.

I'm in love with Mandala
Yo what can I say. Hands down best place to stay in the central side of Europe. Facilities are phenomenal, I felt like it was my bar mitzvah everyday while I was there, and I'm not even Jewish. Beds felt like little clouds and were an immense relief for my aching backpacker's back. Washrooms were so fresh and oh so clean, with steamy water flowing seamlessly for centuries. Location was immense -- 5 minutes from liquor/supermarket/Hungarianfood/tobacco/tram/metro, and you can walk to the ruin bars/clubs without breaking a sweat. The staff. Jesus the staff. Shout out to Furi, keeping the premises functioning immaculately everyday, while still taking us to the hottest spots in Budapest. Stay here and you won't regret. I'm down with the Mandala Clique. Love from Vancouver. I will be back someday.

Best hostel ever
Never felt so welcome at a hostel! Really it is like a little family. A must-stay in Budapest!

An all around very enjoyable stay.
Friendly, fun, and helpful staff. Very social yet laid-back atmosphere. Clean facilities. Rooms are large and don't offer a lot of privacy, but I felt so comfortable with the other guests that this wasn't a problem.

Felt like staying in an apartment with friends
The first impression was perhaps not the best, but that lasted only for five minutes. It's like moving in with a bunch of friends for a while! It's clean and comfortable. I once sat outside the entrance listening to a neighbor practicing the cello, which came to be one of the most magical and beautiful memories of Budapest! Friendly and helpful staff. All good!

Exactly what a hostel should be
I stayed by myself in Budapest for five days, everyone at the hostel was very helpful especially as I had just started traveling alone. The atmosphere is a great mix of chilled and social, Highly recommended!

All the good things
Just go. It's got the best features of the 'old-fashioned' hostel (cosy, no bull) with the 'modern' hostel (clean, cool, good location). If you want something more from a place -- well, you can't get more, so stop looking. Just go.
